I think I will have to weigh in on the subject just one more time. While I was watching the news tonight they showed a hand written apology from A-Rod to his fans. It was in script and easily read. Then it hit me. I can read it! The reason I can read it is because I was taught how to write it. If you do not know how to write in the cursive style, how can you read it? There are of course, some of the letters that look almost like the printed version, but over all, there are enough differences that the untrained reader would have a difficult time. The full impact might make itself known when a group of present day students might perchance have the opportunity to see our Declaration of Independence, or the Magna Carta. "See," would be the operative word here because "read" is almost a thing of the past. Okay, so you can get a printed version. Isn't it kind of like getting the information second hand? When I read something important I like to read the original,if it is possible, and am never content until I do. Why? Because I can. I hate it when I have to say, "I do not know how!!"
